Vector Network News for week ending 5 January 2014
NETWORK SUMMARY for week ending 5 January
It’s been a relatively quiet start to the New Year with just two car v poles in the New Windsor and Mt Albert areas.
There were four building fires that Vector crews attended. These were in Manurewa, Glen Eden, Takapuna and Hobson Streets. Crews isolated power in each of these incidents for the Fire Service.
Lines were reported as being down in Greenlane and Henderson Valley during the week. In both instances, our crews discovered that Telecom assets had been damaged.
A smell of gas was reported in Whataupoto, Gisborne but there were no traces of gas found when we attended the scene.
